Living The Dream
Sunday, April 7, 2:00-6:00pm
Living the Dream Band has been in existence for over 2 years. The product of an idea which had been in the making for several years. Initially we started as a Sinatra/Standards Band. Since then, we have evolved to not only include our initial mix of songs, but also an eclectic mix of 60's and 70's tunes as well. We have developed a style all of our own, which makes us different from other bands. In one evening you may hear "One for my Baby" and "You've lost that Lovin' Feelin" along with many others.

What also makes us unique, is our personnel of musicians. Gary Patricelli(Vocals), Sue Ellen Miller (Piano and Vocals), Wayne Miller(Bass), Dave McGraw(Drums), and Ron Taglarino(Sax). When we are all together, the creative energy flows! We especially enjoy being in front of an audience, watching the smiles on their faces, as they sing along with favorite tunes from the past.
